Patrick Quinn Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance

Perhaps nowhere else does the exciting story of America come to life more vividly than in the Greater Williamsburg region: Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown embody more hands-on history than anywhere else in the county. From the first English-speaking settlement in America, through the formation of government and the struggle for liberty, our area can provide years of learning and entertainment.

In the Greater Williamsburg area you’ll find more vacation freedom than in any destination in America. Want the freedom to have some fun? Find your thrill at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, the world’s most beautiful theme park, or make a splash at Water Country USA. Become a Revolutionary spy in Colonial Williamsburg, then head outdoors to bike, hike, Segway and zip line your way to adventure.

Need the freedom to satisfy your curiosity? Visit one of our world-class living history museums. Learn to kayak or join an archeological dig in Historic Jamestowne. And don’t forget a trip to America’s second-oldest college, The College of William and Mary. Craving the freedom to relax? Explore our beautiful woodlands and wetlands. Or enjoy beautiful spas, a visit to one of Virginia’s top wineries, and amazing dining and shopping experiences at places like Merchants Square, Riverwalk Landing, Williamsburg Premium Outlets, Williamsburg Pottery, High Street, and New Town.
